Nasreen Ahmed* and Divya Kajaria

ABSTRACT

Gridhrasi is mentioned under the diseases of Vata dosha and it is mentioned by all the Acharyas under Vatvyadhi, in this disease pain starts in the lower back and radiates towards the buttocks, thighs and both or one leg. It can be correlated with Sciatica in modern science on the basis of the presenting symptoms. The name Gridhrasi was given as the gait of the patient suffering from this disease resembles as of the bird vulture and in Sanskrit it is named as gridha. In today’s era 2% to 40% of people have Sciatica at some point in time. It is most common during people’s 40’s and 50’s and men are more frequently affected than women. It is commonly occurs due to the compression of lumbar nerves L4 or L5 or sacral nerves S1, S2 or S3 or by the compression of the sciatic nerve itself. In modern science there is no satisfactory treatment or permanent treatment for this physiotherapy or painkillers are the choice for treatment. A case study on Sciatica or Gridhrasi was done in which Katibasti was given along with oral medications and there was marked relief in all the symptoms and considerable change in the MRI of the patient.

Keywords: Gridhrasi, Vatavyadhi, Sciatica, MRI, Katibasti, Physiotherapy.
